Help Save the “Sense of Belonging”

We had the privilege of having Sr. Nagy, a CDP, professor and program head of history at Our Lady of Lake University, come by to our exhibit and tell us why the ITC is important to her and the community. Watch the video below: She also recently wrote a letter to the San Antonio Express News on the Value of ITC in San Antonio. Read it below: http://www.mysanantonio.com/opinion/letters_to_the_editor/article/Your-Turn-Aug-10-11750402.phpShare with us why ITC is important to you and our SA community below! #myitc #itceducation #texancultures #Itcisimportant

The Congregation of Divine Providence’s 2017 – 2023 Chapter Statement committed the Sisters of Divine Providence to “collaborate with others to heal what is broken and celebrate what is good in our world.” San Antonio’s Institute of Texan Cultures is scheduled to have its funding cut and to be downsized (including a substantial cut in its immigrant group exhibits) in the near future. Please help Sister Margit Mária Nagy, CDP, PhD (Professor and Program Head of History at Our Lady of the Lake University) and her fellow Sisters of Divine Providence (CDP) build awareness to the funding cut facing the Institute and how this cut will impact many people’s sense of belonging. The CDP continues to be aware of the signs of the time and calls attention to this matter during our nation’s current climate that debates immigrant reform.
